Default Advice on a x bow for a woman

My sister has a bum elbow and can't draw a regular bow. She only has 50% movement in one of her arms. So she is decideing to take up the cross bow. We have no dealers around here so it is going to be a cabelas purchase. She is 5'5" and about 140 lbs. She is going to need something that is easy to **** and shoot. I am sure she is going to want a scope. There is about a $1000 cap on the purchase. Any insight is appreciated.

Default price point

No band wagon . Thats whats being missed I guess to my fault on explanation. Price point to performance is not brand to performance. The money limit given dictates the best here is a Parker and more specifically a Tornado. If my original price point would have been a 150 more that would have been my purchase. I was not sure when I switched to crossbows I would like them so I choose a price point I could get the performance I wanted to try the horizontal side of archery. Buckeyefootball

Good luck to your sister with her TenPoint. They make great bows and have several to choose from with a variety of prices. Am wondering which one did she get? Am sure Dave at Wyvern also gave her good advice.
